Comcast is terrible
I signed up for Comcast cable and high speed internet. The installer came over, started the process and then got a phone call and said that his buddy's car had just broken down at the local shopping center and he would go give the guy a jump start and be right back. Well you can guess what happened - he never came back. I called Comcast after a few hours to see what had happened - they said they would look into it and call me back - they never did. The next day I called twice and again they said that they'd look into it and call me back - no call back. Within the next few days I called and called and never got an answer. I even wrote (in old snail mail) to the local office and the corporate headquarters to complain and never heard anything. So I took the equipment back to the local office and dropped the service. I don't know how they can just ignore complaints and I can't see how they can turn off customers who would be spending over $100/month without even a concern - they spend so much money advertising for new customers you'd think they'd care for the ones they had.
From time to time our cable goes out or only shows Channel 8. Despite the fact that analog is to be discontinued Feb 2009, customer reps insist we need to change to digital now or lose channels. Once the rep actually hung up when we tried to argue. On May 4 I insisted...Read more

Comcast in Baltimore, Maryland - Incomplete installation, calling over 3 months
When comcast came to install our service, the technician arrived 4 hours late and then informed me that he would have to come back the following day. He installed the service but never covered the outside box that is attached to the side of the house. I called soon after the installation to have them cover the box and have called over 10 times since over a 3 month period. I get the same response from "Customer Service": that they will forward the issue to maintenance but they can't directly influence them to complete the project. Aren't the technicians also Comcast employees? Why do they feel they can be totally unresponsive to customer concerns. Last time I called I got the corporate number (not toll free) and will try that route. But at this point, Comcast has been the worst internet provider that I have ever had.
Comcast - Lied to me Houston Tx.
I changed to comcast when they bought Time Warner. I was told my phone internet, tv cable would be $99.00 per month. I did not have to sign a contract. My first bill was $ 99.00 The next month was 148.00 next month 154.00 I called . The Rep. said he would send a corrected bill he never did. I called again The Rep. said he would take care of it. any way after 4 months . I went back with AT&T. Comcast would rather climb a tree to tell a lie ,than stand on the ground an tell the truth.
Comcast Sucks (so does their triple play)
Comcast is the WORST service provider and has THE WORST billing department. I only have had Comcast triple play for 3 months now. March I called for BASIC cable with their promo with a total of $65.00 for 3 months. Then I get a bill that says I owe $300.00 for the ultimate package. I called them and said I wanted basic triple play. They said they will *** all their fees that they are charging us then wait for the next billing cycle and pay my bill since they messed up on my order. The triple play thatI wanted was no longer $65.00 and is not $100.00 + $13.00 additional for the DVR, so I will need to upgrade my channel selection so the DVR can work. I received my bill in April & it says I have a past due notice and now I need to pay $223.00. I spoke again to the representitive who said I NEED to pay the late fee because I was late paying. I explained to her she needs to read their system notes, that I was not late paying, the supervisor made changes to my account do to the Comcast human error. She said she will not fix it and refused to *** the late fee even though it stated in their system notes that there have been multiple errors and to not over charge the customer. After stressing out over 3 months worth of Comcast I am done with them and their service! I cancelled and went to a different service provider.
Comcast in Issaquah, Washington - Been told 3 times my service bill would be corrected
I originally signed up for comcast basic cable tv and high speed internet. My bill was $99. I was talked into upgrading to super dupper high speed and my bill went to $114. I suffered continuous system down time. Had the techs out at least a half dozen times and was told by one tech that the extra $15 for super dupper high speed was a waste of money in my area. I called to cancel the $15 and was told it was done. I have auto payment and never noticed that the $15 was NOT removed and was charged for over 6 months. I was told that I never called and they couldn't retro the charges but would cancel...it's been a year now and they still haven't corrected the billing. On top of all this my next door neighbor switched to comcast, ordered digital HD and basic internet cable and pays $10 a month less than I do now. JERKS
Comcast is the Worst
Comcast is the worst cable tv service I've ever experienced. And I have been a consumer of cable services for over 20 years, living in many different cities all over the United States and Canada, so I have plenty of experience with cable tv services. Since February 9 (today is April 27), I have had no less than 10 service appointments with Comcast because our cable tv reception, boxes breaking, and "not authorized" messages which cannot be fixed over the phone. Three of these appointments, a Comcast technician didn't even show up or call. Oh but they sure remember to send us a bill. Almost $250/mo with our Internet and Telephone services included. But I think I could pay them $100,000 per month and still get crappy customer service. Their people at their phone center (you get to speak to a different one every time) have no clue what they're doing. About 1/3 of the time, when a technician has showed up, they tell me that the problem could have been fixed over the phone. I hate Comcast, and if I had *any* choice for my television services, I'd switch immediately. Unfortunately, our apartment faces exactly the wrong direction to get satellite, so we're stuck. I strongly urge you never to use Comcast services. They are, by far, the worst in North America.
Comcast couldn't care less about customer service
Comcast NJ - The FTC has to end the structure of cable TV. When we don't have enough options, customer service becomes the lowest priority for a company. Such is the cast with Comcast. I scheduled a service call for Sunday, 4/27. Wanted to get a hi-def box installed. I sat home today and waited. My window was 9a - 11a. As it got later and later, I called Comcast and of course they weren't showing I had an appt. The *** phone rep never recorded it. He did, however, make a push to get me to sign up for the bundle package. (I didn't) Wouldn't shut up about it - yet he wasn't competent enough to get my appt. straight. The best part -- the web site features a section from Rick Germano (I think that's the name), who is supposedly SVP of Operations. Nice long letter from this guy bragging about how great the customer service is. They lead you to believe you can email the guy. When you do the automated response is nothing less than patronizing. Comcast = Slime, pondscum, just plain criminals.
Comcast may have a huge press blitz on regarding their “Big Push” to repair its image, unfortunately other than pay a good PR specialist I don’t think they have done anything to change their monopolistic user unfriendly ways. As a senior citizen I am...Read more
Do you have something to say about Comcast? What happened? What can we help you with?
